"Break Out" Consultation (45 min)
45 min coaching/consultation via facetime, skype, email, text or sit down appointment. All consultations by appointment only. After appointment email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule.
Arrive on time, or — even better — a few minutes early. Because our consultants often have other appointments scheduled, being on time helps you and the person after you get the most out of your consultations.
• Bring a copy of the manuscript.
• You do not need a full draft in order to schedule a consultation. Our consultants are eager to help you at any stage of a writing project—from generating ideas to organizing your thoughts and from integrating research to polishing style.
• If you do have a draft, be prepared to read it out loud. Reading aloud helps you identify areas needing revision that you might not notice when you are reading silently to yourself.
• Get excited to learn something new! Writing consultants don’t “correct” or “proofread” your papers; rather, they teach you strategies and skills that will help you become a better writer. Each time you visit a consultant, you will learn things that can help you improve upon your work as a writer.
